    Rokinon 24mm f/1.4 Reviews

    24mm f/1.4 ED AS UMC Wide-Angle Lens for Canon is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 54.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Why did I get this lens I basically purchased this lens for aurora photography. Living in Iceland where aurora are visible frequently during the darker months and I am involved in various photo workshops, programs, excursions, I felt I needed a very bright lens. My first test with it couple of days ago was great. As always when photographing aurora I focused the lens manually to infinity and taped it down, in case I twist the focus in the dark. Results are best aurora images I ever got. I have not tested it seriously for sharpness, but my aurora images and the stars look as sharp as I used to get with my f 2.8 lens. Good value for money.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lens for night photography I use the lens primarily for landscape night photography, sunrise, sunsets & astrophotography. I love the lens and the price is excellent. The focus ring is smooth and easy to focus with my Canon 70D. It fits perfectly on the DSLR with no play. Seems to be strong construction and great glass. The aperture ring works as good as the focus ring, easy to adjust. It would be nice if the camera would recognize the lens, but I knew that prior to purchase, and manual focus is a must for astrophotography and it also keeps this an affordable lens. I am a photography enthusiast and I don't have a lot of lenses to compare it to, but I love this lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent I purchased this lens specifically for Astrophotography. It has not disappointed. I use it on my Canon 5D3 (Full frame). I stop it down to f2.0 to eliminate coma. Then bump the ISO as high as I dare. For fun the other night I tried a 30 second exposure (10 seconds to long for 24mm) at ISO 256000! Crazy results. Looked completely over exposed on camera, but it still hung onto almost all the highlights. Simply sliding the exposure down in Lightroom revealed amazing results, with very little noise reduction. General Astrophotography shooting for me is done at f2.0 - 20 Seconds - ISO 5000/6400

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Shines at Night I specifically bought this lens because I was looking for something to do astral photography with. I've played around with a number of other lenses with fairly good results, but this Rokinon even beats out the Canon 24mm f/1.4 when it comes to capturing stars. I'm a little sad there is no auto focus, which is the main reason for my 4 out of 5, but the lens produces wonderful images under most conditions. The lens is light, however the build quality is not the best it could be. My lens hood never quite seems to stay put and will fall off at the lightest bump. Over all, a great lens, just be gentle wit it.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Sadly Disappointed. I had purchased this lens for nightscape photography but sadly the decentered lens issue is too problematic. I have tried four of these lenses and all of them were decentered as evidenced by my Zeiss Lens Chart. The build quality of the lenses I received is solid and the focus is smooth. If you're lucky enough to get one that isn't decentered it appears to be a great lens but after four attempts I threw in the towel. If Rokinon can correct their manufacturing issues and produce a centered lens I believe it will be a great lens but at present I can't recommend it. However, B&H gets five stars for their customer support in dealing with my decentering issues with this lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best 24mm F/1.4 for Astrophotography!! Alright, let me just say this. If you are about to get your first 24mm F/1.4 prime and you want to use it for nightscape photography like I do, don't even bother getting Canon's 24mm F/1.4 lens! It has horrible coma/softness wide open (in the corners), where as the Samyang does not. Alright the Samyang 24mm F/1.4 has coma, but it is barely visible and it's gone by F/2. Control of CA is very good also.If you must have sharpness perfection in the center wide open at F/1.4, the Canon is better. But in terms of overall sharpness the Samyang wins easily. Manual focus and manual aperture doesn't matter if you're a landscape photographer. Just get the lens in focus and shoot forever :)One thing that could have been better is the distortion. It can be visible if you're taking pictures of something that is supposed to be straight, but otherwise it isn't that noticeable. Vignetting is just like every other 24mm F/1.4 lens. Noticeable wide open but mostly gone by F/2.8.I seriously recommend every land/nightscape photographer this lens! It is great if you don't mind not having auto focus or weather sealing. Indoor and portrait photographers should also have a look into this lens. It gives pretty nice backround blur aswell. :)

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great astrophotography lens with a few caveats This lens is considered by many astrophotographers as one of the best lenses for star photography along with the other Rokinon 14mm 1.4...the issue with the Samyang lenses (sold as Rokinon and Bower) is quality control. I was aware of the problems with focus when I purchased the lens; there were many comments in forums about the focus being off and some areas of frame such as lower left being out of focus at infinity. My first lens had blurring at the bottom left but I chose to send it back and take a chance on another, and the gamble paid off...this lens doesn't have coma at edges like many other 1.4 and 2.8 lenses when shooting stars...so here is my recommendation: give it a shot, and if it is not sharp, send it back and try another or get another brand...some people have returned 4 lenses before getting one properly manufactured. Also remember that this is a manual focus lens!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great images from night photography. I rated this as a five as it was as I expected, sure I would like autofocus and metering but it was not part of the package. A little disconcerting to me was I knew I would need to manually focus and expose, but on my 5D MarkIII, I did not expect the focus indicators not to work. I figured no problem I would use live view. Well you can but again metering does not work. I wear glasses so I rely on focus indicators more than some. So my work around was setting the metering to make it visible on live view, focus, and reset the metering. But I bought the lense for image quality which it has, I got a good copy and I am wondering if Rokinon has resolved this and if it was a past problem. Going to Oregon for some Milky Way photography so my tests, both at home and in field doing some night photogrphy, indicates great sharpness and no coma.

    question

    Can you suggest me a Rokinon lens which has Focus Confirmation feature in it?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    Currently, the Focus Confirmation Chip in Rokinon lenses is only available for Nikon mount.

    question

    Regarding the quality issues, how do you test to make sure you got one of the good ones?
    Asked by: Terry B.
    One of the more common issues with this lens is a decentered element. While not perfect, a quick test can be performed without the need for expensive optical test equipment. Note - you cannot fix this yourself, but it may show you if the lens is optically performing as designed. You really should do this with any lens you buy and even periodically to make sure you haven't caused some damage.Sorry, this site won't let me include a link, so just google test for decentered lens

    Is there any adapter to use this with full frame ...

    Is there any adapter to use this with full frame Sony cameras like A7?
    Asked by: ALBERTO
    Yes, one can choose an adapter with no electronic communication at all, since the Rokinon lens is a totally manual lens with manual F stops and manual focus. https://bhpho.to/2Iy8KKc

    question

    I read that a lot of people complain about quality issues which makes me hesitant. The lens has a 1 year warranty. If I need to return it many times while still under warranty, like some people apparently did, am responsible for the shipping costs?
    Asked by: christophe r.
    Our Customer Service Department would cover the shipping costs if the item is defective or if it is lost/damaged in transit. Any other reason for return would leaving the shipping as the responsibility of the customer.

    question

    Would this lens be compatible with a Canon EOS M?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    The Rokinon 24mm f/1.4 ED AS UMC Wide-Angle Lens for Canon would not be directly compatible, as it uses the Canon EF lens mount, while the Canon EOS M Mirrorless Digital Camera uses the Canon EF-M lens mount. As such, the Canon EF-M Lens Adapter Kit for Canon EF / EF-S Lenses, B&H # CALA, would be needed to attach Canon EF lenses onto the Canon EOS M Mirrorless Digital Camera. The FotodioX Adapter for Canon EOS-Mount Lens to Canon EOS M-Mount Camera, B&H # FOPEOSMACEA, would also work for your needs.

    question

    I have a canon 750d and I was interested in this lense but want to make sure it'll fit also I am interested in night portrait and sky photography would that be a good option ?
    Asked by: Anna J.
    I use it exclusively for night photography, and love the lens. I'm using it on a 700D (T5i), and it should work just fine on the 750D (T6i).As other answers have noted, this lens if completely manual. There is no autofocus and aperture control is done on the lens, not through the camera. It will take some trial and error to cleanly focus on infinity as the markings on the lens are not always perfect. Still, with about 5 minutes of work on a clear night you can make a pencil mark on the distance ring so that you can immediately come back to the correct focus for astrophotography whenever you want.

    question

    Will it work well with a canon 5D Mark iv?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    Works as advertised, fully manual on my 5D IV. Well depends on your needs. Only had mine a short time, so no astrophotog yet. But my preliminary tests show a well centered lens with decent sharpness a f/2.
